Why Most Violin Practice
(the kind you may have been taught) Doesn’t Work
You've probably noticed that the results of violin practice can vary widely. That’s not a good thing.
Most of us want consistent, forward progress. Especially when you reach a “certain age,” and you don’t have the luxury of decades to reach your goals.
We don’t have hours a day, and that’s unnecessary anyway. Instead, a solid 30-45 minute session a few times a week will serve you well. Especially if you have a plan.
But, when there is no plan (or only a foggy idea of one) your practice results suffer. Random practice produces random results.
The problem is: when it’s time to practice, we want to pick up our fiddles and go! Who has the mental bandwidth, energy and knowledge to plan ahead? That’s a lot of energy lost before you can even get started.
Without exception; we all need these two things:
Being prepared gets you over the hump, those first few minutes of practice required to get the ball rolling and establish a positive mindset.

Practice Circle FAQ
Practice Circle is a new, non-traditional way to experience and enjoy your violin, while at the same time seamlessly improving your skills. It works for all levels of players from novice to advanced.
Here’s how it works:
Most every Monday (44 weeks out of the year) you’ll receive an email with a link to a new video lesson and any related handouts. You’ll also have 24-7 access to our private Facebook group where you can ask questions or share experiences. Each Thursday morning, I’ll appear live in the group to review each new lesson lesson and answer all your questions.
Practice Circle is:
- a guided, weekly experience delivered with video and printable handouts
- a weekly live class on Facebook
- a 24/7 private Facebook group to post questions and/or share your experiences
- a non-traditional way to move your playing ahead with a minimal investment of time and energy
- a growing practice reference and resource that will help you design your own tailor-made practice routines
- a process that opens your mind to exploring and mastering the violin in unexpected ways
- style agnostic; helpful for any genre of playing from classical, fiddle, jazz
- for any violinist from novice to advanced who wants to experience the instrument in a new and mindful way
What it isn’t:
Practice Circle is not an A to Z sequential “violin method.”
Practice Circle assumes that you already know how to hold a violin and bow, produce an acceptable tone, and play a simple tune such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
What if I don’t Like the Program
All of my programs are built around your satisfaction. You can cancel your membership (and/or return to the program) at any time without any penalty.
